You’ll Melt Over These Outrageous S’mores Ideas

A variety of s'mores creations sit on a plat.
Non-traditional s’mores put a fun twist on National S’mores Day.

August 10 is National S’mores Day, so to celebrate, we gathered some out-of-the-box ideas to make your day a little ooey-gooier!

For all s’mores: Wrap your ingredients in foil and close it tightly so nothing leaks out when you flip it. Place on a grill over a campfire, in a 400 F oven, in a 400 F air fryer or in a toaster oven. Cooking times vary, depending on the heat of your fire, so check for doneness often! Flip frequently unless otherwise noted. Greasing your foil with butter or oil is helpful but not required.

Banana Float

Cut a lengthwise slit into an unpeeled banana and stuff it with marshmallows plus sliced strawberries and chocolate chips or your choice of fillings. Wrap it in foil and place over your fire for about 5 minutes, until the peel is browned and the fillings are melted. No need to flip this one.

Cinnamon Roll

Place a refrigerated cinnamon roll dough portion in foil and add graham crackers and marshmallows or any of your favorite toppings. Close the foil and cook for 30–45 minutes, until the roll is cooked through.

Marshmallow Cone

Stuff an ice cream cone with marshmallows and your favorite fillings. Cook until the marshmallows melt.

Hand Pies

Cut a roll of refrigerated pie dough into thirds. Unroll one-third and stuff with marshmallows and your favorite fillings. Close tightly, wrap in foil and cool for 40 minutes to one hour.

Cookie Crumble

Stuff your foil with mini cookies, marshmallows and your favorite fillings. Cook until the marshmallows melt and eat with a spoon.
